Big Egg Family Restaurant

5107 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44102
More than seven years have passed since Big Egg Family Restaurant, a 24-hour breakfast joint, closed its doors on the Detroit Shoreway. It wasn’t that the restaurant suffered from a lack of patrons; the Big Egg had developed a loyal following by offering good food on the cheap. Not so abundant was an adherence to standard sanitation practices. After being cited for a number of health violations, the Cleveland Health Department pulled the plug on what was then a Cleveland staple.
